The subject of sociological and economic analysis is the relationship between traditional religious movements, migrants and social development in contemporary Europe. An interdisciplinary approach to researching these phenomena is unavoidable,and sociology and economics can make a significant contribution to it. Therefore, the authors use a variety of scientific materials, data from official domestic and European institutions and find relevant research on these phenomena. The starting point is: international migration has made a significant contribution to social development, and the role of traditional religious movements in society is changing with globalization. Policies of immigration countries towards migrants of different cultures and religions are changing, which often aggravates (or alleviates) the conflicts between migrants and the local population. In the first part of the paper,research is about the characteristics of globalization, its causes,subjects, dynamics the most important economic, social,political, demographic and cultural consequences. The second part is dedicated to the essence of traditional religiousness.The differences between traditional and new religious movements are outlined. The third part deals with the research of the characteristics of international migrants in Europe, which belong to different cultures and religions. Finally, it is conclud ed that traditional religious movements and migrations have predominantly positive consequences for the immigration country and contribute to economic, social, political and cultural development.
